Me go Cule?

Good Morning Bloggers! I had a nice surprise in the mail today...I actually received a scrappy prize that I won! I have the worst luck with getting things lost in the mail...I'm not kidding you, about 50% of the time the prizes that I win show up...maybe not even that often! So it was a nice surprise when the mail showed up this morning with some yummy Claudine Hellmuth goodies!! I can't even remember where I won them from, so I'm sorry for not giving props, but Thank You!!!

This is one of the layouts I made at the Autumn Masquerade crop: I only got 2 2 days...I usually spend most of my time chatting, and shopping! lol This layout is totally out of my comfort zone! I'm not that great at clustering and flowers and all that pretty stuff, but I thought this picture totally went with that rustic clustery vibe :)

I used this sketch from Boys Rule.

The close ups turned out better than the big one...I have a hard time getting a good shot of light coloured layouts.
I used the new Tim Holtz brick strip die. I'm kina in love with it :) I also used the new Ranger metalic Distress stains on the lock and awesome are they?! I think they're my new favourite thing!!

The title is not a type-o, it says "Me Go Cule?" Kieran is the youngest of my boys and the only one not in "cule" and every time I take Caleb or Ethan to school he says "Me go Cule?!" The picture was taken outside of Caleb's preschool on the first day. He was kinda sad that he didn't get to go. He will definitely be ready to go next year!

Here's a close up of my clustery corner :) 

I'm going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge: Die cuts/punches, and Ranger is having a contest  to use distress inks, and since I use them in every single layout I do, that wasn't hard! Also Simon Says Stamp and Show's challenge is: "Rustification"

Well, I'm off! I have to go get an xray on my foot! It's been messed up for 3 weeks now! Please pray for a resolution! I hope it's not broken, but if it is, then at least I can fix it! I just want to know what's wrong so it can heal and I can start exercising again!!

Have a great day! It's a beautiful one here!

Oh, man, Sarah, I truly apologize for not popping by more often - you've been up to some wicked-cool stuff here, holy cow! I loooove this page, it is so awesome, especially that brickwork and the misting, gasp! And I just scrolled down and saw your other things, love 'em all, but especially your art journal - wow! I've been thinking of trying my hand at that for a bit, seeing lots of pins and watching vids, but it might be a while before I get my act together and do it. Make sure you post everything you do, 'cause I'll be watching! Hugs, Roxy. Oh, and hope your foot is okay (fingers crossed for ya!)
